Animethon 11 - Saturday

It's been another year since I brought you all the Animethon 10 (AX) photo essay.  Well, we have another one: Animethon 11 (AXI)!  There were a lot of changes this year, considering the fact that the original council in charge of putting on Animethon was dissolved and replaced with a new one.  They pulled off a Herculean task, and I was proud to volunteer my time and help them out and become involved with them for another year.

This year, I got to play the part of event photographer, and it was much fun having sempai around with me.  We had a hell of a lot of fun, and romance, and just had a general good time.

As for Animethon itself, there's more information that can be found at their official website.

Koji and Koichi (Digimon Frontier) cosplayers.

It's the return of Sign Guy!  Holy crap!  What?  No more American dollars to whore out? ^_^

Meet one of the proud artists that could be found in Artist's Alley.  I'm glad to see someone isn't whoring out themselves along with their art.

Damn.  Spoke too soon.

There was an infestation of Final Fantasy cosplayers...

It seems former volunteer Rob wasn't immune from the fever!  He and his friends rode up with sempai on the bus ride up to my town!

Bad Luck!  It's Shuichi Shindou of Gravitation.

Hail the Suzako and Seiryu priestesses!

Some crowd shots, courtesy of me sitting atop sempai's shoulders... The things I do to get a great shot... *sigh* ^_^

"Give me back my book!" *squee!* A Yomiko Readman (Read Or Die) cosplayer!

Here's a Hikaru no Go cosplayer, with a spectacular shot of Grant MacEwan's portrait in the background.

All of this was taken before the opening ceremonies!  That isn't to say the opening ceremonies were any boring.  Not in the least!  Just click the link and be taken to where the magic begins... whoo!
